Growers served by the Turlock Irrigation District will receive a maximum of 30 inches of water per acre this year, unless rain starts falling fast.

The Turlock City Council will hold a special, 6:30 p.m. meeting Tuesday to discuss planning the 2013-2014 city budget. For this year's budget planning, City Manager Roy Wasden is suggesting a new process, where Wasden would prepare and present the entire City of Turlock budget. According to the city, the new system could make it more clear how budget decisions affect interconnected city units.
The Turlock Irrigation District Board of Directors on Tuesday will consider approving a 2013 irrigation season which would begin March 7 and end Oct. 9.
